a Soquel High School student, getting involved can mean joining a club,
participating in student activities, or doing community service. Being
involved in community service and extracurricular activities can help
with college admissions by providing a well-rounded résumé.
Extracurricular activities can also help with scholarships, figuring out
a future career, or networking. Find a good balance between classes and extracurricular activities, and remember to never sacrifice good grades for an overly-busy schedule.
